Criterion taking a break from racing genre


Criterion Games’ creative director has indicated that the developer next project sees them taking a well deserved break from the racing genre.

Having recently delivered Need for Speed: Most Wanted U for Wii U, the British studio’s attention now moves them away from Burnout, Need for Speed and Road Rash.

“Here is what I want folks to know,” creative director Alex Ward began. “Some folks are eternally disappointed. Nothing I can do about that.”

He continued, “So many tweets asking for new Burnout, equally many tweets asking for a new NFS game from us. Also Road Rash.

“Whilst I love all of those games, I am personally not doing any. After over a decade of making racing games it’s time to make something new.

“It is early days thus I have nothing to “announce” or talk about, but if you are following me expecting some Megaton of a new Burnout game, or an Underground remake then I have to disappoint you.”
